“I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley.”

I just read that Leslie Nielsen, one of my favorite actors, died at the age of 84.  I hope he won’t mind if I recycle some of his movies that I already recycled.  I had 2 versions of The Naked Gun, one with Fred Thompson, who was gunnin’ for votes

Batshit Bachmann Has a Farm, E-I-E-I-Uh-Oh!

From Yasha Levine at truthdig:

Michele Bachmann has become well known for her anti-government tea-bagger antics, protesting health care reform and every other government “handout” as socialism. What her followers probably don’t know is that Rep. Bachmann is, to use that anti-government slur, something of a welfare queen. That’s right, the anti-government insurrectionist has taken more than a quarter-million dollars in government handouts thanks to corrupt farming subsidies she has been collecting for at least a decade.

And she’s not the only one who has been padding her bank account with taxpayer money.

The *Untied* States of America, Part 2….Eh?

Hey comrades amigos kids! Yesterday, we explored The Republic of Texas and the new Russian Alaska circa 2010, as predicted by Igor Panarin. If you will remember, the deteriorating economy, immigration, and a lack of morality are going to swirl together and turn into a new American civil war. While we are at each others’ throats, foreign powers will swoop in and take over.

Today, I thought we would examine the new Central North American Republic (let’s call it CNAR), which will be part of Canada or under Canadian influence.

Just as in The Republic of Texas and the new Russian Alaska, politicians in the CNAR will try to adjust to the new reality. Let’s begin with Senators Sam Brownback and Pat Roberts. Hey, guys! Looks like you’re not in Kansas anymore! Eh?

Miss Buffalo Chips or Misogyny?

Just when you thought Captain Underpants couldn’t degrade his wife anymore…from Top of the Ticket at the Los Angeles Times:

John McCain on Monday became the first presidential aspirant to attend the annual Sturgis Rally in South Dakota, an event dating back to 1938 that each year attracts hordes of enthusiasts for a week of celebrating biker culture.

…snip…

McCain, [Times’s Bob] Drogin relates, told his rowdy listeners “that he had encouraged his wife to enter the annual Sturgis beauty contest, one in which nudity is not uncommon. … ‘I told her with a little luck she could be the only lady to serve as first lady and Miss Buffalo Chip,’ he said with a broad grin.”
